Chocolate, strawberry, lemon and hazelnut are typically top selling gelato flavors, but recently the new "Pope” flavor has been a major crowd pleaser.
"We named the new flavor Holy Popes. It’s a combination of sweet milk, cream, and pieces of candy. It is a very sweet flavor in honor of the sweet character of these two popes, who we remember with fondness.”
The gelateria is located in the Borgo neighborhood and this week, business is booming. The extra work has proven to be well worth the effort.
"We made the gelato white to match the color of papal vestments, and the color of the Church in general.”
There is nothing better than gelato to beat the heat in the Eternal City. The ‘Holy Popes’ gelato is only offered for a limited time and is a tasty way to celebrate the canonizations.
